News outlets have reported on an Instagram account @TTCWomen, bringing up concerns about women safety and privacy. I’m annoyed by a couple of things: the account, and the lazy and hypocritical media (as well as my photos being used without permission by both sides). 140 characters isn’t enough to vent my frustration, so I wrote a blog post instead.

Mostly due to back and knee issues, I can’t stand on my feet for 12hrs any longer, but also because the TIFF organizers are making it more difficult to find celebrities throughout the city.
Here are some of my favorites from TIFF this year.
